It's like, disjointed.
7 April 1999 | by J. RyanSee all my reviews

I feel obligated to put in my 2 cents as a dissenting opinion to the flurry of good press about the show. It's not bad, certainly better than some of the other mindless sitcoms out there (ABC's entire Friday night line up is horrible and completely unwatchable). I understand that the producers expect the show to be a parody of all that is LA.

However, the show never gels any of the elements well. Chris Eigeman is an incredible actor and I enjoyed him in Barcelona and Metropolitan, but as New Yorker just hanging out in LA? That's the problem. While Seinfeld purported to be a show about nothing (and towards the last few seasons, it really was about nothing as writers were scraping the barrel for ideas) at its best it had hidden intelligence and subtle comedy. It's Like, You Know has neither, just a series of chance happenings that have really no conflict nor irony.

Jennifer Grey is gorgeous, and as much as I hate to say it, I like the nose job. It's great to find actresses willing to poke fun at themselves, but I still wish the series had more to offer than just LA.
